Potential List for Unplugged Gamers GT

posted Jan 25, 2013 01:11:02 by jake_hutton
Hi Everyone,
I am deciding to return to the orcs and Goblins for a bit, while I continue to paint my Bret army. I am hoping to bring this list to the 2500 point Unplugged Gamers GT in Connecticut.

Lords: Orc Warboss w. Sword of Strife, Armor of Silvered Steel, Potion of Speed 205

Savage orc Great Shaman w. Fencer's Blades, Lucky Shrunken Head, lvl 4 290

Heroes: Orc Shaman w. Lvl 2, Ruby Ring, Dispel Scroll 150
Black Orc Big Boss w. BsB, Dragon Helm, Shield, Crown of Command, Ironcurse Icon 167

Core:
34 Savage orc Big 'Uns w. Fc, 2 Hand Weapons (Deployed 7 Wide) 409
34 Orc Boyz w. Shields, FC 273 (7 Wide)
20 Night Goblins w. Bows, Musician, 2 Fanatics 120
5 Goblin Wolf Riders 50
5 Goblin Wolf Riders 50
5 Spider Riders 65
5 Spider Riders 65

Special:
6 Trolls 210
Orc Boar Chariot 85
Orc Boar Chariot 85
Orc Boar Chariot 85

Rare:
2 Mangler Squigs 130
3 Pump Wagons w. Spiky Rollers 180

So basic idea is that the Savage orc block, Orc boyz, and trolls operate as my main combat units. The Orc Warboss goes in the Unit with the Boyz giving them hitting power. Each of these units should be pretty powerful on its own; however, they will deploy and move together so they should form a pretty formidable line.

If anything to scary comes my way I throw chaff in its face and avoid it. Worse comes to worse the characters jump ship and I feed it one of my three units (while killing the rest of the opponents army).

The Boar Chariots should prove to be pretty competent chaff hunters, their high T and 4 wounds should make them pretty tough to kill, and they throw out a great amount of damage. Working together they should be able to tackle most support choices.

Some of you are probably wondering where the warmachines are. Honestly I have 1 doom diver and 1 stone thrower. By themselves they almost always do awful, I think you really need two in order to accomplish much. I decided to skip them in the list and just throw some more killing options out there. Hopefully against a shooting heavy list my many fast choices will be able to close with the warmachines, while the meat of the army advances.

So thoughts?

Also I was debating swapping in a unit of 22 Squigs, and 13 Squig Herders 215 points 7 wide, 5 deep.

Use this instead of the crown of command and the pump wagons. Thoughts?

A quick glance at the army screams "FUUUUUUUUUUN" to me! I'd love to play against this army with just about anything and it's a bit different from the norm. Hopefully all those drops will let you control the matchups within each game. Also, holy mother of impact hits! Totally digging it.

This army looks pretty darn solid. I love the blocks/trolls being backed up by all of those chariots! My only pieces of advice would be:

1. Switch out Sword of Strife for the Sword of Swift Slaying on your general. Re-rolls to hit > +2 attacks.
2. Try to fit the points to put a Black Orc in both of your infantry blocks.
The slightly less beautiful host.

Thanks for the feedback :). I am getting in a game tomorrow against ogres i'm thinking I will be trying out this list. Tweaked slightly.

Greg for most armies I agree sword of swift slaying would be better, but the orc warboss only has an initiative of 4. So against so many armies he won't be rerolling.

I may still try to find to points for the characters to be black orcs.

I tweaked the list after some feedback on the Garagehammer site, but I think I lost a lot of the original awesome factor from the original list. :
